Valentine  The Replacements


written by Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson, and Chris Mars
as recorded by the Replacements on Please To Meet Me
Well you[D] wish up[A]on a star[G],
that[D] turns [A]into a pla[G]ne
and I[D] quess [A]that's right o[G]n par,
with who is left[D] to bla[A]me[G]
If you w[D]ere a pill, I'd take a hand [A]ful at my will,
and knoc[G]k you back with something sweet and strong,
pretty t[D]ired you wake up, in febuary make-up,[A]
like a f[G]ool and a lone star your gone
[A]Tonight makes love to all your kind tomorrow's picking valentines[G] [A] [G]
After paul sings "Valentines" the riff is just D A G, hit D with the
counting like:
D A G (I hope that's clear, you should be able to get the
exact strum
1 2 + 3 + 4 + from the record, with the accents)
(second verse, pre-chorus, and chorus the same guitar part)
You pop up in some place,
so sick and so refined
Are you strung out on some face,
well I know it ain't mine
If you were a pill, I'd take a handful at my will,
and knock you back with something sweet and strong.
Trouble keeping your head up, when your hungry and your fed up,
like a moon and lone star your gone.
Tonight makes love to all your kind, tomorrow's picking valentines.
The bridge is just variations on the guitar parts already used, so I'm
not going to bother tabing in all out unless someone requests it.
The final pre-chorus/chorus is:
[D]If you were a pill, I'd take a handful at my will,[A]
[G]and knock you back with something sweet as wine
[D]Yesterday was their's to say, this is their world and their time,[A]
[G]Well if tonight belongs to you, tomorrow's mine!
[A]Tonight makes love to all your kind, tomorrow's picking Valentines (2x)[G] [A] [G]
[D] [A] [G] 
[1] [2] [+] [3] [+] [4] [+] 
The outro, apparently one of Westerberg's favorite songwriting
tools(Think "Kiss Me On The Bus") is just straight eighth note strums,
like so:
[D] [A] [G] 
[1] [+] [2] [+] [3] [+] [4] [+] 
The main riff, if you want to get fancy, when you play A hammer on then
pull off to the 6th(E). When you play G, add in the 2nd(A). So the riff
looks like this:
[D] [D] [A] [A6] [A] [G] [Gadd2] [G] [Gadd2]  
[1] [2] [3] [+] [4] [1+] [2+] [3+] [4+]
